FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – On Thursday, August 20th, it’s A&W’s Burgers to Beat MS Day!
$2 from every Teen Burger sold across the country will go towards the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
Over the last 12 years, this campaign has helped to raise more than $15 million for the MS Society of Canada, this year’s goal is to raise more than $1 million.
This year A&W created the first-ever Take Out Burgers to Beat MS campaign, which works to make sure Canadians can make a valuable and safe contribution from anywhere.
A&W encourages Canadians everywhere to all come together and rally for a change by raising awareness and supporting those who live with MS.
There will also be a hashtag #BurgersToBeatMS, and you can tag both @AWCanada and @MSSocietyCanada on social media platforms.
MS is a neurological disease that affects the central nervous system.
